Supply chain survey

The Offshore Wind Sector has the potential to bring significant business opportunities to companies in our area and we want to ensure that they are able to capitalise on them.

To help us identify the current and potential offshore wind supply chain companies and their capabilities, and to help us promote local expertise, we are asking you to complete this short survey by:

  • identifying what services you currently offer to the sector
  • services in other sectors that you believe could be transferred into offshore wind
  • services which could be adapted for the offshore wind sector with appropriate support
  • services which you aspire to offer the sector in the future

You will also be asked to provide some examples of projects that your company has undertaken.

This information will be searchable in the supply chain database available for the developers and their contractors.

Thank you for your time and we encourage you to take 15 minutes to complete this survey.
